Browsing on Hampshire folk song (after listening to MtheGM's charming rendering of The Besom Maker) I stumbled on this project:

The Singing Landscape Project

It sez:

"The Singing Landscape Project
In 2006, Somerset County Council funded the production of 20,000 Somerset Folk Maps researched by Bearman and Staelens. The Singing Landscape Project extends the Folk Map concept to Gloucestershire and Hampshire through collaboration with Gloucester Folk Museum and Hampshire County Council Museums and Archives service, and is funded by a £204,000 AHRC Knowledge Transfer Fellowship grant. The project also continues work in Somerset, this time in collaboration with Somerset County Museums Service.
About the Project
The Singing Landscape Project aims to:
    * Create cultural awareness of collected English folk song and dance in the west of England.
    * Produce folk maps, presentations and touring exhibitions that will stimulate the public to make their own enquiries into these specific expressions of intangible cultural heritage.
    * Provide a resource for musical researchers and family historians."

And apparently there was supposed to have been a touring exhibition in 2009, upon the culmination of the project.

Anyway I did a search here at Mudcat, and nada about it.

Anyone get involved? Anyone see the exhibition? Any more info?

I know nothing about it but it looks absolutely fascinating.

There was a month long exhibition at Bournemouth University about this project in April.

Have you looked at the Hampshire Voices web page:
http://www.forest-tracks.co.uk/hampshirevoices/

There is this link and much more info on the project and Hampshire songs.
